    With the new update coming to the iPod touch and iPhone it will be adding the ablility to use Bluetooth headphones. I was wandering if anyone knows of a good in ear Bluetooth headset.

    I've used the new Jawbone bluetooth for a while but i prefer the in ear v-moda vibe II for about $120. the jawbone is uncomfortable for me and, without the ear loop, tends to fall out of my ear, regardless of the ear plug adaptors used. I've owned and used a number of the bluetooth headsets in the past and, for me, until they develop an in the ear bud with a good mic with batteries that last for at least as long as the phone, I think I'll pass. The 'wired' v-moda vibe IIs are great and the sound is superior and I don't have to worry about battery failure mid conversation.

    just my .02

    good luck

    I would not ever recommend the V-Moda's, except over Bluetooth headphones. For the most part they aren't very quality and all are extremely overpriced. Why is having wires such a bad thing?

    You must not have any experience with the v-moda vibe IIs, they are exceptional and have a broader frequency response than any other 'wired' headphone in the apple store. Have you personally tried or used the vibe IIs? IMO, they are a great value at $120 when compared to high end blue tooth or other wired headsets. I own this headset and couldn't be happier.

    Yes...I've tried them... Does your Apple Store not carry SE430s? I mean they might be the best at the $120 price point in the Apple Store (Not the greatest place to buy headphones) But, compared to plenty of other headphones at even the $100 price point, there is a lot to be desired. With that being said, they did make a slight improvement from the original model, but improving awful to poor ≠ good.

    They are a great value compared to Bluetooth headphones, but that's because you have to pay the ridiculous premium for Bluetooth.

    Yes, they did have them at my apple store but I was more interested in headphones with a mic and remote control. The vibe IIs were hands down the best at that price point.
